Quilty fun

I'm showing you guys some of the quilt tops that I have finished and need to get quilted. Hopefully they will be done sometime in the immediate future. I just have so many things coming up that I don't know how it will happen lol.

 This is a project I drooled over for a long time. It is a Sweetwater project called Intersection.
 I made it with the same fabrics used in their quilt, the Hometown line. I just love all their fabric
 lines and adore this pattern. I had some leftover blocks that were not the right size (don't
 know how that happened) so I just used them for the backing. I LOVE this quilt.

Next up is the cute little pattern by A Bright Corner.  This is one of her free tutorials and I must
say it was quite easy to follow. The directions were clear and concise and this was a lot of fun.

Here is another wonderful quilt design that I got from the moda bakeshop.  Starry Eyed used another wonderful fabric from the girls over at Sweetwater.  Did I say I love their fabric? 

This little gem sprang from and idea over at Cupcakes and Daises. This is my version of her crimson and cream snowball challenge.  Thelma is an awesome quilter and we both share an affinity for red. That's so funny because I never was a red person before and now I have somehow fallen in love with it.

Here is another quilt done with my all time favorite quilt line put out by Sweetwater.  It is called Sunkissed and I just could not buy enough of it.  It is done in a quilt pattern called Smitten by one of my favorite bloggers, Rachel Griffith over at ps I quilt. 

I hate to admit, but this quilt has been done for some time and I haven't quilted it YET!

I had planned on making it for my little girl when she was a toddler. She is nine now, just a little late huh?  The pattern is from the book below and it has so many cute patterns for quilts and pillows.  Oh, I do eventually plan on finishing it and possibly make the matching pillow.  Hopefully it won't be for my grandchild.  I could always add more borders and make it bigger, but then begins the trouble of trying to find just the right fabrics.  Me in a quilt store equals bad news. I really do try and limit myself. But hey you only live once right?

Here is a quilt I was just playing around with a new tool and decided to use up some stash fabric. It uses the twister template and was very easy to complete.  I love the inspiration fabric that I used, but not so crazy about the quilt. I got this cute little animal print batik in Paducah, Kentucky a while ago. Didn't know what I would do with it, just knew I loved it and had to have it.  Most of my fabric purchases seem to go that way.  I think I will just practice some new quilting designs on this baby and use it as a picnic blanket.

This little beauty is a gorgeous quilt designed by my LQS in Collinsville, Illinois. The store is
Cross Patches and I simply love this shop.  They are filled with wonderfully inspiring projects. please ignore my wheel of fortune pose lol.

Here are just a few close-ups of  some of the blocks.
